Matthew 24:37-39

"But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be."
Matthew 24:37-39

In general conference today, the prophet mentioned the things going on in the world today... and said that he couldn't help thinking of certain scriptures.  Matthew 24 was one that he mentioned.  I am in no way trying to say that these verses are ones that he was specifically referring to... in fact, there are others that are perhaps more relevant that I noticed as I was reading.  I just thought that these verses were interesting.  Almost comforting, in a way... :)  That life will go on, at least in spots, pretty normally... people getting married at least... until Christ's coming.  Scary too, though.  Noah was preaching to the people.  He told them about the flood... but they still didn't know until it happened.  I wonder how often we ignore similar warnings in our lives. :)  For instance, today. :)  The prophet said two things about safety which I wrote down:  "Our safety lies in repentance" and, later, "Our safety lies in the virtue of our lives."  ... let's listen to the prophet's warning, and instead of being oblivious like the people in the days of Noah, let's work at keeping ourselves, our families, and our communities safe.
